SILICON VALLEY IS THE WORST, COURTESY OF 9 NAUSEATING QUOTES FROM THAT NYT ARTICLE ABOUT AMAZON

Seriously, how do these people take themselves seriously?
  1. "Climb the wall."
    What you're supposed to do when you hit a wall.
  2. "Never settle."
    From the company's "leadership principles" aka cult commandments
  3. "Dive deep."
    Some bullshit business speak that means do your job
  4. "Think big."
    As opposed to small, clearly.
  5. "Im peculiar!"
    Not to be confused with "I'm quirky!", this is allegedly the company's proud phrase for overturning workplace conventions. Also great for Brooklyn flea markets.
  6. "Be vocally self-critical."
    Also, back stab the shit out of your colleagues via anonymous messaging services to your boss!!
  7. "Once you know something isn't as good as it could be, why wouldn't you want to fix it?"
    Oh, I don't know, cause I'd rather take a nap?
  8. "When you're shooting for the moon, the nature of the work is really challenging."
    Totally, bro. I get it. Shooting for the literal moon all the days must be straight exhausting!
